The Visual and Digital Arts (VDA) major prepares students for creative careers in a wired world. Contemporary digital tools allow VDA majors to not only conceptualize and create content but also produce and publish multimedia visual communications projects. Along with developing these digital skills, students will engage in tactile art making experiences, as there is no substitute for what the hands can teach the brain about creativity. By choosing the Visual and Digital Arts major, students will come to see the world as artists and develop the ability to imagine what does not yet exist. The goal is not to "think outside of the box", but rather, to create the box itself. Many of the courses in the VDA program emphasize creative problem solving and invention and prepare students with an adaptable mindset. These students will be ready to embrace new employment opportunities that will surely emerge in the current climate of fast-paced workplace evolution.
